Madeline 'Maddy' Loftus RIP

She was one of those killed in the crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407. From the Buffalo News-

Madeline Loftus, 24, a former Buffalo State College student who lives in New Jersey. She was on her way to reunite with 14 other alumni of Buffalo State's women's ice hockey team for a game Saturday. Loftus played for the school team from 2002 to 2004.Loftus.jpg
Neither my wife Leonita or I know or met Maddy, but she was the cousin of one of our church choir members. Leonita, who works at our church and is active in the choir right now, spoke to her family. They are very distraught right at this moment. Please say a prayer for Maddy's family. God bless them and all who died in the crash and their families.

You can be certain Bill that many of us are praying for those families who have to endure this tragedy during this most difficult time.

My daughter Brianne is a friend of Maddy's and was so looking forward to this weekends reunion. She called me at 1:00 this morning sobbing hysterically with the news. Maddy was one in a million - gorgeous girl, with a contagious smile. The world will never be the same without her. To her family my deepest sympathies. To the Lord up above - take care of our angel.

My brother worked with Maddy at Peak Hockey camp. He called my mother crying today, he is in Holland playing Pro hockey. He is very upset. Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of Maddy and the the rest of the families of this horrible accident. God Bless Maddy!!!!!

I worked with Maddy at SMU 2 years ago. she truly was one of the sweetest girls i've ever met. when i heard the news i absolutely couldnt believe it. It saddens me to know that i will never get to see her beautiful smile again. i will forever keep maddy in my heart, and although i knew her for a brief period, i will remember her forever. if you met her for 30 seconds, you would remember her forever, she was that magnetic. God bless you Maddy!

I had the privelage of coaching Maddy as a High School player and worked with her at Peak Hockey for 3 years. Many people say many kind things regarding victims in tragedy such as this. Words would not do justice to Maddys approach to life and how she touched those who knew her. Her spirit is rekindled in many hearts as I type, including mine, and I truly hurt for Anna, Frankie and her parents. Such good people shouldn't have to disrupt the order life should go in, and, in burying thier child, I deeply hope they endure this with her smile and grace in mind. I am priveledged to have met her. Kristen, if you are reading this, please tell PV to call Bob at Peak and get Ryan's phone number. I miss everyone and would like to speak with them.
